Protective Style: The Turban/Ninja Bun

Remember how I said fall would be all about the protective styles for me? Well I came across this style via a Youtube tutorial shared on KinkyCurlyCoilyMe.com and it seemed like a quick and easy style to do so I decided to try it out. Armed with my $4.99 Marley Hair, a scrunchie, some leave in conditioner, and a few mini-combs we took to the mirror and gave it a shot!

Hair Done…again!

Since the first time I got my hair braided and took them out entirely too quick I’ve been dying to either get them done again or teach myself to braid. So guess what happened!?…I asked my sister to do it!! With my moms ponytail (I’m sorry ya’ll haven’t a clue what it’s made of) added to the back for extra cuteness I’m set!

Not only did she put her own spin my design idea, but she did it in record time! And yes folks she does do hair (kids too!). So with my idea to keep my hair either blown-out or braided all winter I’m definitely keeping this style for a while longer than I did the last time. Any day My hair is done in 5 min or less is a great day for me!

First Look: Bantu Knot-Out

I gave the “Bantu Knot” technique another try this week (the first time was nothing to write home-or here- about) and I liked how it came out but I inadvertently came up with another technique I’m calling the Two Strand Twist + Bantu Knot style. Creative name right? As uninspiring as the name is, it’s exactly what I did to get this look- two-strand twist first then bantu knot the twist. Yep it was that easy, and being new to this hair thing, easy is the magic word for me!

Maybe my hair’s gotten used to the braid-outs a little too much, or I just forgot how to two-strand twist because my last two-strand twist was just…bleh! So I figured, why not try both techniques together– and voila! Oh and I’m still on the shea moisture 🙂
